Most headaches are disabeling from the pain involved, but usually do not reflect serious underlying problems. The most common types are tension headaches and Migraine headaches, the latter are usually more severe and may involve precipitating symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, severe light sensitivity, visual displays such as light patterns . The brain itself is not sensitive and does not hurt. What does hurt are nerve innervated structures such as skull sutures, blood vessel, muscles and their attachments, and some nerves such as those to the eyes.
Any direct irritation to innervated structures can produce a headache.
Many headaches are precipitated by issures in other parts of the body.
Serious Causes of Headaches:
These are less common, but can produce the same symptoms as less serious causes. More serious causes are suspected if a strong headache comes on in a person who does not usually have them, or if headaches are persistent over a long term.
If possible, the cause of the headache needs to be identified and removed. Applied Kenisiology is extremely useful for quickly screening potential inflamed organs, subluxations and infections. Eliminating these causes alone will remove most headaches. In most cases this can be done with spinal manipulation and nutritional supplementation, or eliminating toxic input.
